Maritime Boat Shoe



With their recent rise in popularity, everyone is making a boat shoe – but not like this one. To make this traditional slip-on extraordinary, we outfitted it in Horween's Chromexcel leather, which is made using a recipe that's close to 100 years old. Not only does this tanning process result in the softest of materials that molds to your foot, but it also seals the leather so that it stays supple even when it goes from wet to dry so they always feel as comfortable as they did right out of the box. This theme of taking what's old and making it new can also be seen in how we've chosen the traditional look of the handsewn vamp, leather lacing, and two-eyelet instep and given it a fresh update by offering it in a variety of colors so that not only does it fit and weather like no other boat shoe but it also looks like one of a kind.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion to remove surface residue and to keep leather soft and pliable. To achieve a fine luster, wipe shoes with a damp cloth and allow them to air dry at room temperature. Then, apply a coat of Allen Edmonds Premium Shoe Polish with a cloth or horsehair dauber and allow to air dry.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Maritime Boat Shoes is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 119.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stylish shoes; questionable quality These shoes are stylish and have a great contrast between the sole and the vibrant color of the leather. The leather is soft, pliable, and durable. My complaint though is that the cut of leather for the upper is a bit bigger than it should be in one of my shoes, which results in awkward bulging and the leather creasing easily. The kind of thing that should have been caught by quality assurance!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good boat shoe, but buyer beware This shoe, like its counterpart, the Kirkwood, are an excellent example of AE's use of CXL, a great water-resistant material perfect for shoes like this. The materials have a real premium feel to them that surpasses that of many of the competitors. I brannock at a 7.5C and with a 7D, I have a very comfortable fit in these. They run wide; the CXL definitely stretches over time also and many have said they choose a B-width sort of "preemptively" but I think true to width is good enough. They run about a half size shorter than the 65 last's length. The Krikwood and Maritime fit approximately the same; the sueded / nubuck Maritime fit slightly more snug than the CXL. Unfortunately, I have to give a less than stellar rating (2.5 would have been more accurate). Primarily, you should be able to purchase a boat shoe and have a pretty good idea of what you're getting. I had to go through at least 3 pairs of Maritimes due to the insoles becoming unglued straight out of the box. Most recently, on a pair of brand new factory 1st quality Kirkwoods, the shoes were clearly mis-lasted and felt a full width wider than advertised. I totally understand that due to the handsewn nature, small variations are to be expected, but total structural defects like this especially on factory 1sts are completely unacceptable. I am VERY forgiving when it comes to aesthetic details. I have received shoes from AE with misaligned eyelets, off-centered wing patterns, etc. But structural defects I won't tolerate, and I would hope others would find it unacceptable to have to buy and return 3 plus pairs prior to getting one that is acceptable. So in that regard, not good. If you're lucky enough to "strike gold" and get a good pair from the start, you've gotten yourself a really nice boat shoe made of premium materials. Otherwise, let the frustration begin. The recent decision to build the Cove & Shannon completely in the DR has me a little concerned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit. When I tried these on I knew they were keepers. I purchased an 11-B. That's my size and they fit like a glove. It took about a week to break in, not a concern. I've received several compliments while wearing these and I personally like the looks. The leather insole was a must to repel perspiration odor and it's working just fine. All in all, I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice casual shoe Looks like the best dock shoe on the market. I put in additional insoles to add a little more comfort.

Ask & Answer

Navy Blue Color Fading

The color is fading a little on the front of the shoe. I did not see a polish offered in navy. Any suggestions on how to keep the color from fading?
Asked by: M.Fox
Chromexcel leather is heavily infused with oils and polish is not recommended because it is not effective. In areas where the leather is folder or rubbed, the leather will appear lighter because the oils redistribute themselves away from those areas. You can minimize the appearance by massaging the color back into the hide. Keep in mind this is part of the natural wear and aging of this type of leather. Importantly, if you have any concerns or needs about your purchase, please contact our customer service team directly at 1-877-817-7615. We'd be happy to help.

Should these be stored with a shoe tree?

Asked by: Blair
This is a personal decision. Most leather shoes should be stored with shoe trees during the post-wear drying process (for at least a full day after wearing them) so they retain their correct shape and don't develop deep wrinkles across the vamp. These shoes are meant to look "worn" (that's part of the appeal), and don't really have a full vamp. Shoe trees certainly won't hurt and may help to keep them looking new and tidy, but probably not necessary. I use shoe trees on all my normal work shoes (mainly AE and Alden cordovans), but don;t see the need to put shoe trees in my boat shoes. That's just me, however.

Are the soles of the Martime sewn on or cemented on?

In answer to a posted question, I just learned that the Kirkwood's outsole is cemented on rather than sewn on. My pair of Maritimes, which are built on the same 555 last, have stitching in the channel of the outsole. Is this merely decoration for a cemented shoe, or are the soles sewn on rather than cemented on for this model?
Asked by: Bob
Sewn on. These are the best quality boat shoe on the market for a fair price!

Can you use waterproofer with these shoes?

I would like to wear these, well, near water. I was wondering if you can use a waterproofer with these or if it'd hurt the pretty leather.
Asked by: bonusbrandon
They are designed to handle water. You can condition the leather to protect them. Excessive wet exposure will reduce the life of the shoe. AE has a conditioner or cream, either will work great.

Should I size these with socks or none

Should I size these with socks? With jeans I may want socks but shorts or hot day maybe barefoot.
Asked by: Anonymous
You should size them without socks. They will be very tight unless using very thin socks. You'll want to wear them barefoot in most cases. They look great with almost any attire.
